After a week full of Christmas shopping, catching up with friends, school commitments with the Little People and not an ounce of hooky time to be found, yesterday was earmarked as my crochet day. It was delightful - I parked myself in the Big Chair which has been squished up to make room for the Christmas tree, and settled down to work those Sunny rows. I had Christmas tunes playing, a scented Winter Wood candle flickering on the mantle and all was fine and dandy in my woolly world. Oh those colours - so in tune with my own personal Colours of Christmas, it made me smile to think of my blanket co-ordinating so beautifully with the Christmas tree!
So this week we are on with squares 13 and 14 which are going to be sitting next to each other along the bottom of the blanket. Can you see the subtle diagonal stripe that appears when the two squares are placed together? I am loving the colour-play of this blanket very, very much, it's scrumptious. Right then, lets not waffle, lets get right down to the colours for this week......

Even though I am going to be very busy doing Christmassy things this week (hello Christmas cards that still need to be written and posted!), I'm really looking forward to making the last two squares for my Sunny Log Cabin blanket. Sitting down in front of the fire with my hook and colourful bag of yarn to hand gives me so much pleasure and relaxation at this time of year. I often find myself giving quiet thanks for the accidental way that crochet came to me eight years ago, and how much it has changed and shaped the course of my life. Wherever would I be without yarn and hook?
Have a truly splendid festive week my lovelies, enjoy everything this season has to offer. Wishing you love, light, peace and happiness, and a whole load of joyful hooky xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
